REPUBLICAN HYPOCRICY. 2015/09/22
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
I have noticed that a Republican candidate for President, has regurgitated “The Birther and Religion” question again in regards to President Obama.
The main culprit in this preposterous lie is none other than, dare I say “The Donald” (Trump). Obama has just over a year left in his 2nd and final term in office yet the Republicans still rehash what has been categorically proven false. Obama was born in Hawaii of an American Mother and Kenyan Father. He is a Christian, not a Muslim and under the 14th Amendment of their Constitution he is American.
Even this is not enough for Trump as he and Rand Paul challenge the legality of that amendment. Now here is where the HYPOCRICY comes into play. Senator TED CRUZ of Texas.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was born on 22 Dec. 1970 in Calgary Alberta of an American Mother and a Cuban Father. Because he was born in Canada that made him Canadian. It took him until March 22 2015 to renounce his Canadian Citizenship at age 44. The Republicans accept the fact that because Cruz has an American mother that makes him America. They, however do not extend that same courtesy to President Barak Obama whose Mother is American and Obama was born in Hawaii the 5oth state of the union. Is it me or is “something Rotten in the States”? To me this smacks not only of Hypocrisy but Bigotry, and Racism. This stems from the fact that the majority of Republicans cannot stand the fact that a Black Man and a Democrat who they also maintain is a Muslim is their leader. Racism is alive and well in America.
Article VI. U.S. Constitution
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
The U. S. Constitution states that there shall be a separation of Government and Religion and that one religion shall not be favoured over others. As Article VI also states that no religious test shall be required to hold public office. One could very well surmised that Obamas religion is no one’s business but his own. Obama is a Christian Protestant and that should be the end of it in most peoples’ minds. Not the Republicans, they are like an old dog worrying a bone. Trump is catering to the lowest section of the American populace playing on their fears and prejudices. One can only hope that between now and November 2016 saner heads will prevail and shoot the Republicans down in flames.
